Maracas Bay.

This piece was inspired by a recent trip to my native land of Trinidad and Tobago. One of the days down there we had taken a trip to one of its most popular beaches, Maracas Bay. The beach was almost empty that day and so relaxing. I wanted to convey that same feeling in the Illustration.

I just wanted to share this new image as well as letting you all know that prints of my work are available upon request. Soon I will have a section of my website up where you can purchase prints online. Prints will be individually signed and numbered. More information will be available soon, so keep checking back.

Mc Secret??

This new piece is a reaction to a recent article I had read concerning a well known Tex-Mex establishment. This particular restaurant is a place I used to frequent once a week until I read the news. I felt like a lover scorned, and I had a whole rant and rave prepared for any reader that happened to come across this blog. But...I managed to calm myself down. Instead, I will just provide these links which serve as better sources of information... enjoy

It has been a little while since my last update, but I have been real busy as of late.

There you will find two of my latest works along with a few other artists including my friend Aaron Brewer of Brewtoons.com . So check out the flyer below and come on down to take in the work and consume a few drinks while you are at it. Hope to see you there.

Jenna SIx

This piece was inspired by recent events that have been unfolding in Jena, Louisiana. The following is and excerpt taken from www.whileseated.org

In September 2006, a group of African American high school students in Jena, Louisiana, asked the school for permission to sit beneath a "whites only" shade tree. There was an unwritten rule that blacks couldn't sit beneath the tree. The school said they didn't care where students sat. The next day, students arrived at school to see three nooses (in school colors) hanging from the tree. (Please note, the tree above is not the tree, but a tree at Jena High School.)

The boys who hung the nooses were suspended from school for a few days. The school administration chalked it up as a harmless prank, but Jena's black population didn't take it so lightly. Fights and unrest started breaking out at school. The District Attorney, Reed Walters, was called in to directly address black students at the school and told them all he could "end their life with a stroke of the pen."

Black students were assaulted at white parties. A white man drew a loaded rifle on three black teens at a local convenience store. (They wrestled it from him and ran away.) Someone tried to burn down the school, and on December 4th, a fight broke out that led to six black students being charged with attempted murder. To his word, the D.A. pushed for maximum charges, which carry sentences of eighty years. Four of the six are being tried as adults (ages 17 & 18) and two are juveniles.

On the other hand...

I recently picked up the new Talib Kweli album Eardrum and if you have not, I recommend you do the same thing. This piece was inspired by a particular verse where Talib had described how his old record label kept trying to categorize him in different Hip Hop genres. Categories such as the "Angry rapper " , " Backpack rapper" or " Conscious rapper". But I feel if you are familiar with his catalog of work you would realize that he is universal, and if I had to classify him ... he would be put in the category of Dope MC.

Free Pass

In no way is this piece meant to be subtle...

This particular creation stems from the recent outcry of both the right and left wings of the US government over the recent suspension of Scooter Libby's jail sentence by President Bush. It seems the president's abuses can no longer be ignored by either side. I don't think many have commented on this situation better than Mr. Keith Olbermann . Its a little lengthy, but enjoy ...

This illustration was inspired by a story I have been following for some time now. It is about a boy with a very promising future, who was arrested and scentenced to ten years in jail for having a partner of the opposite sex perfrom a CONSENSUAL sex act on him. Now of course there is a lot more to this story. But I hope my peice and this brief synopsis will encourage you to learn more about this. You can easily do a search or easier yet follow this link.

Cyclical Trends

So let me start by saying that I try not to be judgmental. But I was in NYC around Spring Street last Saturday just walking around and picking up some art supplies when suddenly I started to realize that every once in a while people with those huge Dookie rope chains draped around their necks would pass. I kind of smirked to myself thinking that it was interesting piece of fashion that just happened to be making a come back. But, it did not stop there little by little I started to see more late 80's early 90's hip-hop fashion. Everything from the flip up multi colored caps to, high top fades, to those big rimmed glasses that Spike Lee used to sport in Jordan commercials back in the day.

Now, seeing all these fashion revivals separately I pretty much just dismissed it and kept it moving. Then, heading uptown I heard a rumbling of bass and the sounds of clapping behind me. I turned around to find a group of no less that ten full-grown men dressed like something straight out of Krush Groove. I felt like I was in a time warp, these people were decked out in what was the height of fashion…about two decades ago. And the bass was coming from a boom box hoisted upon the shoulder of the man that seemed like he was the pied-piper navigating his group merry human throw-backs through a crowd of people either shaking their heads or clapping.

Bear vs. Shark

So I was just sitting at work one day and thought to myself ..."self, what would a bear wearing a pointy hat versus a shark under water look like? Yea I know, I have a lot of time on my hands. But I digress, I started putting some ideas down on paper and eventually turned that into a finished product. So feel free to scroll down at take a look at the process from beginning to end.
This is step one of my process. Just using copy paper I put down two sketched on paper.
This is step two, I decided to go with the first sketch mainly because it looked more like an even battle, rather than the bear hitching a ride on the back of the shark. I took the first sketch and created a cleaner work up with a few variations.

Step three is me spending hours pushing and pulling the color and mess with filters in Photoshop. After all that what you see above is the finished product...I hope you like.
